Weird Weather and your Wardrobe

You would think by now we’d have this winter thing down, but lately it’s getting more difficult to adapt to. One day there’s a blizzard, the next day we have a flood. This ever changing climate leaves many of us confused as to what to put on our bodies when we step outside. Wear a heavy coat? Bring an umbrella? Wear a hat? So in order to be prepared for a typical day of Michigan weather – including rain, fog, sleet and snow – it’s all about layering.

Layering, done in the right way is super cute and a huge trend right now. These ladies layered strategically by pairing their favorite skirts with tights, a cardigan and the occasional scarf. Layering is great because you can dress for two different climates all at once.
